Welcome to the Northern Virginia chapter of Greyhound Pets of America (GPA-NoVA). We primarily serve the Washington DC metropolitan area, Northern Virginia and parts of Maryland. We are committed to adopting retired racing greyhounds into loving forever homes and educating the public about these wonderful companions.

If you’d like to learn more about greyhounds, please visit us at one of the many meet and greet events we hold every month. If you are ready to welcome a retired racing greyhound into your home, please visit our adoptions page.

We have answers to the most commonly asked questions on our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page. If you still have questions, please reach out to us here and one of our volunteers will be in touch with you.

Our greatest strength are our volunteers. We have volunteers all over the Washington DC metro area, ready to help adopters, prospective adopters and the public with any queries or concerns. We are always looking for volunteers who with to donate their time and skills. If you’d like to volunteer, please visit our volunteering page to see what opportunities are available.
